  • Serenity is unable to see Life Capsules; this is ignored for gameplay reasons if the player doesn't choose 3-HP Mode which is confirmed as the canon path.
  • There are 5 clones of her but only 2 of them are alive during the main story; Serenity and Ataraxis share the same default outfit because the latter is a clone.
  • Out of all the Mimigas in Cave Story, King is her favourite. This is shown in Lunar Shadow v0.4's ending where her father takes on the form of King when she's trapped in the ending before returning to life.
  • The medical eyepatch she wears after Lunar Shadow can be obtained in Lunar Shadow itself, in a treasure chest hidden in the Entrance.
  • It was confirmed by Cibryll (as "Kim") that Serenity is ambidextrous, it is unknown if her clones share this trait.
